Actor, shoe cobbler and milkshake enthusiast, Daniel Day-Lewis takes method acting to almost comical heights. Known for staying in character in front of cameras and while sitting in his trailer, doing his laundry at home, buying groceries and going to the gym when preparing and working on a movie, it appears that the Oscar winner is already in full presidential mode for "Lincoln." The Film Stage has a snap of the actor eating a lovely meal in a shot for the paparazzi any other day, except dude is rocking some serious Abraham Lincoln facial hair and seems to be posing for a coin. So yeah, it's sort of a first look. At least for now.
A rather wild rumor posits that DDL hasn't broken character since March and while we know the actor is dedicated, that seems more apocryphal than anything else. But it makes for a good yarn. There is also word that his name has been wiped from call sheets as well, which makes a bit more sense. No word yet if any of the other cast members of Steven Spielberg's upcoming historical epic have gone The Full Day-Lewis, but if Joseph Gordon-Levitt starts walking around with a monocle, you know what's up.
"Lincoln" rolls in front of cameras soon and will likely arrive in time to earn Oscar nominations in every category in late 2012.
